Campo del Cielo

20 Aug

Campo,del ,CieloAt all times, people believed that the Earth has a satellite – moon. And just recently there are indications that the moon is not the only natural satellite of our planet. In the myths of antiquity could find information about the incident on the Earth of a cosmic body. Some scholars see this event answer to the mystery of the legendary Atlantis.
In the north of Argentina is located district of Campo del Cielo – “Heavenly the field.” This name recalls the ancient Indian legend that tells of how, in this very place, fell from the sky a mysterious ball of fire. The old chronicles say that the Spanish conquistadors found on the Campo del Cielo a huge piece of iron, which is used for the manufacture of swords and spears.

In 1576 the Spaniard Ehrman Mexico de Miraval among the marshy lowlands of the Gran Chaco, five hundred miles north of Santa Fe, stumbled upon a large block of iron. Then an enterprising Spaniard is four went back to a block of iron and beat her on the small pieces for various needs. The fifth and last expedition to the iron block of organized Don Rubin de Celis in 1783. He estimated the mass of the object at about 15 tons. A detailed description of this strange lumps are not preserved, and the more it has not been seen, although attempts were made to find her repeatedly, and still dream of finding a mysterious object excites the imagination of adventurers.
In 1803, in the vicinity of the Campo del Cielo was accidentally discovered meteorite weighing about a ton. The biggest piece of it weighing about 635 kilograms in 1813, was taken to Buenos Aires, and later it acquired the Englishman Sir Vudbayn Derish and presented to the British Museum. This block of outer iron still rests on a pedestal in front of the museum. Part of its surface specially sanded to be able to see the structure of the metal with the so-called “figures Vidmanshtettena” indicating an extraterrestrial origin of the object. The remaining fragments of the meteorite have been lost.
Meanwhile, in the vicinity of the Campo del Cielo is still continuing to find meteorites and the strange pieces of iron weighing from a few kilograms to several tons. The largest weighed 33.4 tons. He was found in 1980 near the town Gancedo. U.S. researcher Robert meteorites Haq wanted to buy this piece to get him to the U.S., but Argentina’s government opposed this. To date, this meteorite is the second largest among all meteorites found on Earth – after the so-called “meteor Khoba”, weighing about 60 tons.
An unusually large number of meteorites found on a relatively small area, shows that several thousand years ago over spilled a whole “meteorite rain”. Evidence of this, besides finds themselves iron bodies, is the large number of craters in the area of Campo del Cielo. “Meteorite field is in the shape of an ellipse, stretched for 17 kilometers along and 6 miles across. The largest crater is the Laguna Negra: it has a diameter of 115 meters and the depth – more than two meters.
Legends and discoveries of Campo del Cielo in 1961, became interested in American scientist from Columbia University’s W. Cassidy. As a result of his studies found a large number of small metallic meteorites, so-called geksaderitov, consisting of almost chemically pure iron. At the same time, researchers have noticed a strange fact: usually in the explosion of a large meteorite in the atmosphere of his pieces fall to Earth, scattering ellipse with a maximum diameter of about 1600 meters. And on Kampodel Cielo length width is 17 kilometers!
Released preliminary findings of the studies Cassidy caused a sensation. To him immediately came hundreds of volunteers. As a result of their search for new fragments of meteoritic iron were detected even at a distance of 75 kilometers from the “field of heaven”!
The final conclusion reached by the expedition Cassidy was: a huge meteorite fell to Earth is not a near-solar orbit. Before the fall of a celestial body drawn on an elliptical Earth orbit, gradually drawing closer to the Earth. That is, over time the body was the second natural satellite of Earth!
According to this hypothesis, the Luna-2 is gradually approaching the Earth by the force of gravity, has not yet crossed the so-called “border Roche and not split into parts. These pieces have some time treated in Earth orbit, and then entered the atmosphere and in turn began to fall on the Earth’s surface. Through the efforts of Cassidy geksaderity were found even at a distance of about a thousand kilometers to the west of the Campo del Cielo, in the territory of Chile.
When it happened this cosmic catastrophe? Discovered in her place charred stump of a tree – the result of huge fire caused by a meteorite bombardment – has an age of about 5800 years.
… Even some six or seven thousand years ago in the night sky above the Earth could see two of the Moon. And then … Then, perhaps, happened that very catastrophe of which legends and myths of many peoples of the world: “The stars fell from the sky, crossing out the sky a fiery plume, ground foamed shook and cracked, shaken by jerks. The world was collapsing. The consequences of this catastrophe have offset the Earth’s axis at 30 degrees, tectonic shifts and, possibly, flooding large tracts of land. And maybe, just on the plains of Campo delSelo hidden clue mysteries of Atlantis?
